of the defense spending cuts and we're not going to fold the debt ceiling increase into this deal, and i think the white house was very taken aback by the meagerness of that offer. and so there's a different tone. but if the substance is going to be enough and the time is short, it's really going to be complicated to get this done by the end of the year. >> mosark, if the debt ceiling not wrapped up, the president is not going for it. he does not want to face this twice. >> it's impossible to imagine, that's such a key piece for the white house, just not to have this fight again. it's going to have to be a joint whip operation in the house. i think there will be a period from the time there's a deal amongst the leaders in the bipartisan leadership in the white house, there will be a period from then until it gets passage in the house that will look like where are the votes going to possibly come from. but if stan hoyer and john boehner are willing to do a deal that they can both support, i think they can get to a majority in the house. the key -- the real trick is the two-part thing or maybe t
that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into the details. in the congress, we have all these different committees that claimed some part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. pete, we need some energy legislation and leadership. good luck. every now and then, i would get into his territory and he would teach me a lesson about how far i could get into energy policy because he would come to me and say we have to do this differently. one of the questions i know people will ask -- why are you doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy
security and medicare, make some defense cuts if you have to but we'd rather just see the rich get taxed and the near rich get taxed if we have to do that. >> the numbers do not add up, the left is being fundamentally dishonest. they are saying you don't have to cut social security or medicare or medicaid to get the deficit down, all you've got to do is tax the rich some more. they are recklessly suggesting that we go deeper and deeper and deeper into debt heading towards bankruptcy. the numbers, megyn are stunning. we have an unfunded liability for medicare of $42 trillion. an unfunded liability for social security of $20 trillion. and a further 20 trillion for unfunded pensions for federal employees, that adds up to $86 trillion which are committed to pay in the future and the money we do not have. therefore, you cannot just tax the rich to get rid of the deficit. you simply can't do that. the numbers don't add up. megyn: chris, what do you make of this, the president is now going to go out on what looks like sort of like a campaign stop on friday to pennsylvania. he already had this m

seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend
of the doubt when it comes to repeat offenders. the detroit lions defensive taxle ndamukong suh should expect no leniency when the league reviews this play today. suh kicked houston quarterback matt schaub in the groin, at least it seemed that way during the lions thanksgiving day game. good morning, jamie. >> good morning, carol. how are you? >> i'm good. the nfl is supposed to review this play. do you think it's already made up its mind about suh? >> it sure sounds like it. ray anderson, vice president of football operations was quoted extensively over the weekend. he said what you just said. that is that past actions, past indiscretions will come into play. there was already a report from mike freeman of cbssports.com that suh will be sus penlded for at least one game. apparently he did kick him in the groin. i think when you look at that tape and we've all looked at it over and over again since thanksgiving day. he does roll over. it's hard to say he has control of his leg. there's that kind of secondary motion where it looks to me, like a lot of people he intentionally strikes schaub rig

: they are saying what they believe is on top of that you have the automatic defense cuts that are kicking in at the end of the year and they believe if you let all of this happen on the tax side, on the spending side there will be big cuts to the pentagon but not likewise cuts to medicare and other big entitlement programs and they believe that is another part. on the tax issue the republicans are playing defense. if they don't act the white house is ready to blame this on them in terms of going off the cliff. after coming out of the election where the republicans nuclear a hit the white house hopes they will not want to take another big blow after the election so quickly. >>shepard: powerball sales are skyrocketing, upping the jackpot and the odds someone will win the big surprise tonight. it is at $550 million. that is a record for powerball. the odds are slim of swinging, 1 in 75 million but zero chance if you don't buy. people are dreaming. >> i felt my whole life i was supposed to be rip. >> pay the bills and house off. not have to work. ever again. >> i have 17 charities first. they
are going to be under 2%. we have defense spending at the end of the fiscal year which perked up a little bit. exploits were surprisingly strong. if you look ahead to 2013, where is the strength of one come from? households have maintained their spending only by driving down their savings rate to just a little over 3%. so there is not a lot more to come their, and household incomes are lower now than they were a year ago. so i think it will be very hard, even without an fiscal hit to the economy. even without that, it's going to be hard to have 2% growth next year's. cheryl: martin county mentioned that he will tax cuts. it seems that no one really wants to extend that at this point. but that is going to go away on january 1. >> i think that is right. cheryl: what does that mean you? >> is a big number. probably about three quarters of a percent permanently coming out of the after-tax incomes of households. so most of that would be subtracted from spending. >> maybe 1% of gdp? you have to% grooth of gdp, it could be 1%. is that what you're saying in this economy? >> well, 70% of this econ
a nato patriot air defense missiles. they're clearly worried about rockets and missiles coming into turkey from syria from the regime of bashar al assad. how worried should turkey be about engaging with syria in an actual war? >> wolf, the turks are very worried. and the turks are very disappointed. i've spent a fair amount of time in turkey this last year or so. they're very disappointed in washington's abdication. they feel that washington has left them holding the bag. the prime minister has always felt that he had kind of an inside relationship with president obama. but now the turks are left where they are. they are left with this running, shooting campaigns with the syrians. they're left with well over perhaps 120,000, 130,000 syrian refugees and they feel they have been left alone. the patriot missiles are the least we can do for them. >> thank you. >> thank you, wolf. >>> could air travel cost you more if the country goes over that so-called fiscal cliff? up next, the doomsday scenario some experts are now painting. i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. ad

treasury secretary geithner and even defense secretary leon panetta has made it clear he would like to leave within the year. the current white house chief of staff still considered the odds on favorite to get the nod to become the next treasury secretary from the president. it's believed he has the greatest chance here it's believed of getting senate confirmation. that leaves open the job of white house chief of staff. and i'm hearing that among the names that are being considered for that role are ron clay, the man once biden's chief of staff and did himself i'm told a great service in president obama's debate prep despite that bad first debate the president takes responsibility for it, does not blame mr. clain. and another name i've heard floated is dennis mcdunna. earned the great respect and admiration of the president. a young man not often considered in that light but the president admires him. but that of course leaves open the question who would take over for secretary clinton and for leon panetta. and those are some dicey questions right now given what dana has just report
